Bashing Christians for Christmas
By Mike Huckabee
Nathanial Blake at The Federalist examined how three prominent New York “intellectuals” spent their Christmases bashing Evangelical Christians, and the many ways in which they got their facts wrong and instead relied on false, politically-biased stereotypes.
Whenever I read one of these “New York liberal ‘deep thinker’ bashes Christian Trump supporters’ stories, I always think of the fable about the group of blind men who tried to describe what an elephant looked like when each of them could only feel one part of it. Do you know the difference between my criticisms of New York liberals and their criticisms of conservatives and Christians outside of New York? I’ve actually visited New York and talked to liberals.
Trump approves spending bill, but with a catch
By Mike Huckabee
Many conservatives were upset over the weekend at news that President Trump had signed the massive spending bill that he’d threatened to veto. But there’s more to the story.
Trump reportedly signed it because he didn’t want any more delays in getting needed support to Americans still suffering from the endless COVID-19 (Chinese) virus shutdowns. But in doing so, he invoked the little-known Impoundment Control Act of 1974. That gives him the power to “redline” provisions of the bill, such as the countless examples of wasteful spending and giveaways to other countries, and force Congress to reconsider and remove them.
There’s no requirement for them to act, and if they don’t act within 45 days, the bill will go through. But it gives the public up to 45 days to let their Congress members know what they think of this porkulus maximus and hold their feet to the fire.
There’s more information and Trump’s full statement here.
Want to make some liberals’ heads explode? Follow me…
By Mike Huckabee
Cornell University announced that all returning Caucasian students are required to get a flu vaccination. But black, indigenous and other students of color may forego flu shots because they may have concerns “based on historical injustices and current events.” They may have feelings of “distrust or powerlessness” due to “acts of violence against Black people by law enforcement.” Or people of color might feel it “suspect or exploitative” due to BIPOC bodies having “been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain.”
So, having bent over backward to come up with PC justifications for not giving flu shots to students of color, the university administrators should be asked this question: “Why do you want students of color to get the flu, you institutional racists?” We all know that when the rate of flu cases rises higher among minority students than whites, it will be ascribed to racism anyway, so why not get a jump on it and just accuse Cornell of racism now? After all, if I said that a college was giving flu shots to white students but not non-white students, wouldn’t you assume that was a story out of the 1940s?
This is your brain on political correctness. The only vaccination against that is to not send your kids to a school like Cornell.
Logic Is Not The Left’s Strong Suit
By Mike Huckabee
In California, where aborting babies is considered a sacred right, the California Supreme Court declined to halt the murder prosecution of a woman whose baby was stillborn because she used meth while pregnant.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra argued against the prosecution, claiming it could discourage pregnant women with addiction issues from seeking healthcare and spark “additional and unnecessary scrutiny by law enforcement on every miscarriage and stillbirth.” (Becerra is Biden’s pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services. He’s also so radically pro-abortion that he charged multifple felonies against the undercover reporters who exposed Planned Parenthood’s brutal practices with no regard for how it might discourage the press from exposing the truth about powerful organizations.)
However, a spokesman for the Kings County D.A.’s office said this is “not a case about abortion nor women’s reproductive rights,” it’s “about a person who did specific acts that resulted in the death of a viable fetus.”
News flash to California officials: Abortion is “doing specific acts that result in the death of a viable fetus.” Some also call it "murder."
In a related story, a California judge not only awarded Planned Parenthood $2 million in damages for having their practices exposed, he added $13.5 million in legal fees.
The pro-life undercover reporters who did nothing more than what “60 Minutes” has done for decades (only they did it to a darling and big funder of Democrat politicians) expressed confidence that once the case is out of the hands of a California judge, it will be overturned and they won’t have to pay Planned Parenthood a cent. Let us pray.
